‎ Shampoo and true - false anecdotes

‎1- The more foam, the cleaner the hair. This is a pretty common misconception. Foam is formed when chemicals react with air and water. Example: Alkaline-free shampoo with very little foam but still cleans hair. Ideally, choose an oil that has just the right amount of lather to make lubricating the hair easier.

‎2- If you wash your hair every day, your hair will be damaged quickly? This warning is not entirely true. If you have oily hair, you need to wash off the greasy layer to get rid of pollution. If you leave it on for more than a few days, dirty oily hair will increase the number of strands that fall out much more than clean hair. However, you need to choose an oil specifically for oily hair that must have moisturizing ingredients like Panthenol + shea butter. Dry, damaged hair also needs to be washed every day. Note: With any type of hair, when washing, you should not scratch strongly, the lighter the massage, the less damage.

3- Using a shampoo forever, the hair will get used to it, and it will no longer work. Need to change to another brand? That's the advice created by advertisers in the 90s. Shampoo is not an antibiotic to make the body "sick of medicine". If you have found the right oil for your hair, you should not give it up.

4- Using baby shampoo is safe for adult hair and the hair will be as soft as baby hair? Advertisers also try to convince "baby shampoo is suitable for sensitive oily skin". In fact, if your hair is chemically dyed, pressed, permed, gel, mousse ... then baby shampoo is not enough to clean your hair. If your scalp is sensitive, it may react even if you wash it with cold water.

5-Expensive shampoo will fix weak hair. Shampoo just makes hair softer and shinier. Your weak hair needs to be supplemented with nutrition both from the inside through diet and medication. Masking and conditioning have a significant impact on the hair roots. Keeping hair in a clean environment is also important.
